Research on display at Optometry’s Meeting®

An enhanced scientific poster session at Optometry's Meeting® in Seattle, Washington, not only connects attendees with unique case studies and research, but also offers new continuing education (CE) opportunities.

"This is the latest in clinically relevant research that you will put to immediate use within the office."

Popular as a national forum for clinicians, students and faculty to display their work, the AOA's 2015 Poster Session features an all-new, accompanying CE course that provides attendees with the most timely, clinically relevant research in a fast-paced and dynamic format.

Fifty peer-reviewed scientific posters will be exhibited this year, covering ophthalmic topics ranging from contact lenses to ocular disease and pediatrics. The top five posters, as selected by the AOA abstract review committee, will be presented in a separate CE course. These authors will make a 15- to 20-minute presentation, followed by a rapid-fire question-and-answer session in the "Current Research that You Should Incorporate into Your Mode of Practice Now" course.

Dominick M. Maino, O.D., Poster Committee chair and course moderator, says topics for the top five posters include LCD-based contrast sensitivity testing, bilateral CME, binocular balancing with subjective refraction and much more.

"This is the latest in clinically relevant research that you will put to immediate use within the office," Dr. Maino says. "Do not miss Optometry's Meeting, and make sure you attend the amazing posters session and presentations."

Get a first look during the poster preview session Friday, June 26, and attend the AOA Interactive Poster Session for CE credit from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
